[WTB] i7 goodies

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, after my last bout of spending and splurging I've decided to go i7. Too bad I missed matt's for sale stuff from a couple weeks ago hey?

 

Anyways I need:

 

Moherboard, prefer Asus P6T deluxe, (OCC reviewed one I think)

 

CPU i7 920 and up

 

Ram minimum 6gb preffer DDR-1600 2000mhz ram.

 

 

 

Let me know what you guys have.

Hmm, I'm not really a fan of lapping IHS's. Is it a good OC'er? Theyre 280 from newegg so I guess I would pay 180.

 

BTW how do you like that MSI X58?

What does that have to do with the price of bread? If 1366 will be the platform for the new 6 core cpus then why would I want to wait for a platform that is geared towards the mainstream segment? It sounds as though i7 will continue to be the "enthusiast" platform for quite some time. Maybe I'm wrong but it doesn't make sense to wait for a less powerfull platform.

 

BTW I have enough 775 stuff here to build 2 more complete systems!

The platinum In my experience has a hard time with memory over about 950 MHz. A new BIOS will hopefully help as the latest BIOS made a huge difference in overclocking. A huge difference! ITs a fast board for the most part! 1866 7-8-7 is a breeze but higher gets tricky.

Crash I have a extra P6T Version 2 if you are intrested

 

 

Could you PM me with details? And yes I am interested. The V2 lacks SAS support though right?

Bosco thanks for the PM but that's way more than I would want to pay for a new board. I would really like the V1 revision as it has SAS support and 8 SATA, whereas the V2 has no SAS and only 6 SATA.
